The Modesty Craze.
This was my reaction to the glut of articles
celebrating the publication of the young conservative pundit
Wendy Shalit's book A Return to Modesty. I actually do
own a Take Back the Night shirt, but it doesn't really fit--I'm wearing
it in the cartoon because it was Take Back the Night Week.
Someone wrote an angry letter to The Crimson
accusing me of being patronizing towards women who choose to
wear modest clothes, and of equating turtlenecks with
rape--this was not in any sense my intention. The point was
that women should be able to wear whatever they want--whether
it be a miniskirt or a full-length fur coat--without being stigmatized.
Or something like that.
